One of my favorite things is people telling me how they need guns to feel safe this month while just last month they were mocking me for wearing a mask and getting a booster because I was a scaredy cat or a chicken or a sheeple or something.
I already have vertigo and nystagmus. I really don’t need more involuntary eye rolling.
Also, can someone explain to me why it’s okay to tell someone to suck on a lemon but not okay to tell someone to suck on the barrel of a gun?
If lemons don’t kill people and whole guns don’t kill people, surely just the barrel doesn’t kill people either. Why be offended? Please explain it to me like I have a brain tumor.
Okay, now that I’ve got the snark out of the way, I want you all to know a couple of things.
First, I voted. Early. By mail. Did you know you can get vote by mail ballots in Illinois for every primary and general election?
Here’s how to request a ballot by mail in Champaign County.
If you’re in another Illinois county, look up your county clerk’s website.
If you’re in a state with restrictive, outdated voting policies, I’m sorry. You deserve better. Even if I personally think your politics are terrible.
Second, Izzy was on the counter, and we opted to take a picture of her act of defiance rather than punish her, because in this house we encourage authoritarian resistance.
Seriously, folks, vote every chance you get.* You might accidentally make something better.
* Don’t only vote, but at least vote.
